Daily Covet: Kate Spade Salt & Pepper Set

HOW CUTE ARE THESE SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS?!  (And how about two posts in a row this week?)  But how cute are these really?

Yes, I’m totally screaming that!  I’m so in love with navy and gold right now and the fun geometric prints on these Kate Spade shakers are T.D.F (to die for!)

Kate’s Fairmount Park Dot & Stripe Salt and Pepper Shakers marry preppy, deco and pop artsy seamlessly.  They would really complement the chicest penthouse dining table and the most eclectic studio with a table for two perfectly.

It almost makes me want to rethink my dining room colors to incorporate these into my table decor.  Hmmm….

Daily Covet: Little Red Dress

You know I love dresses.  Cotton dresses.  Little black dresses.  Formal dresses and sundresses too.

And now I’m loving this little red dress from Kate Spade.  It’s a perfectly shaped red shift with great lines, semi-cap sleeves and the best. color. EVER.  Maraschino, if you must know.

I’m a major fan of Kate Spade and her new Paris-inspired line has me wanting more.  And more.  Dress this little frock up with animal print pumps or slip into gold sandals.  And wear it virtually anywhere.

This dress is the cherry on top!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Tayla

Since we’re talking outerwear, let me just add this awesome Kate Spade “Tayla” topper to my list of needs wants.

The adorable pyramid-style buttons and patch pockets make this coat detail rich.  And it’s a versatile coat, which comes in two of the most rockin’ colors:  Loden and Gold.

So one in each color then?  Yes, please.

Kate Spade meets Keds

Kate Spade meets Keds.

What a super cute mash-up of brands.

Kate Spade’s cute patterns and kicky colors paired with Keds’ classic and simple style will launch exclusively at Nordstrom this month.  The price of the eight available styles is $75-$85 and are in honor of Kate Spade’s 20th anniversary.

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Darla Sandal

Is it summer yet?

I’m ready for sandals.  How about Kate Spade Darla Sandals to be exact?  These are absolutely the cutest with all the colors of the rainbow and natural-colored pantent straps.  Three patent straps that I absolutely love.  This is a great update from similar sandals last summer and I love the new look.

I know we’ve got a long way to go, but I’m needing to pump my collection of cute wedges, flip flops, maxi dresses, handbags and accessories.

Why?  Because I will be spending the summer (all or most of it) pregnant.  Yep, you heard it here… and here for a twist on the news… that this girl will be putting high fashion on hold in favor of roomy (and tent-like) clothing.  But I digress…

Let’s just take a look and a drool at these pretties!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Merino Fingerless Gloves

I’m a sucker for winter accessories.

While the three boys in my life share a basket of warm hats, gloves, mittens and scarves, I have my own.

Stocking caps, berets, scarves, snoods and more fill my cup… er basket, to overflowing.

Last winter when I replaced a too big winter puffer coat, I picked a charcoal gray one.  I’ve been collecting fun and brightly-colored accessories ever since.  And that’s why these Kate Spade fingerless merino gloves are on my list.

Of course, I love the turqoise blue color and the whimsical dot print.  I also like they they are long, just in case I want to wear them with shorter sleeves or push them up inside my coat for warmth.

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Champagne Flutes

Nothing says “cheers” better than champagne flutes.

And these Kate Spade “Say the Word” flutes literally say, Cheers.  And Pop.  And Fizz.  And Clink too!

To top them off — or more appropriately — finish them off, these champagne flutes have handpainted, multicolored bases.

With the holidays approaching, Kate Spade’s champagne flutes are both a great gift and a great way to entertain.

Cheers!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Lea Coat

I love this Kate Spade Lea coat.

I love the retro shape.  I love the mod-ish print.  I  love that it’s easy in cotton with a touch of silk-blend pizzazz.  I adore the round neckline and mini collar.  And I’m smitten with how it’s shown here over something very short with black opague tights.

For a girl who adores toppers, this coat is definitely tops!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade iPhone Cover

iPhone covers… like I need another one.

But when this Kate Spade Garance Girl iPhone cover showed up in my twitter feed, with a little message about how it reminded my faraway friend of me… I suddenly felt my iPhone needed a new outfit toute suite!

Now, to disclaim… I do own a similar red coat, ankle strap heels and up until recently, a short blonde bob.  However, my legs, nor my neck, are that long.

But bless my dear friend for thinking ’bout me, in the first place!

Daily Covet: Women’s Laptop Bags

Hi y’all.  Sorry for the hiatus.  I’ve been a busy girl celebrating my birthday for most of the last week (as I tend to do every year)!

First, thanks to my wonderful family and all my girlfriends, who made my birthday so special this year.  Since “39” is the last birthday I’ll admit to, it was great to make the most of it.

But now it’s time to get back to work (and back to my diet!), and that means I’m in the market for a new laptop bag.  I have a pretty simple black, quilted bag now, but the strap broke.  I’ve been carrying it around like a large and particularly cumbersome notebook.

So a new laptop bag is what I’m coveting today.

I’ve been scouring the Internet for possibilities, and have found some super cute options in all price ranges.  True to form, my favorite is the most expensive.
